Arizona representative halts daylight savings bill
Rep. Phil Lovas, R-Peoria, has announced his decision to halt HB 2014, the bill meant to move Arizona into Mountain Daylight time.
He also released the following statement:
“Last week I introduced House Bill 2014, which would have moved Arizona to Mountain Daylight Time. I did this after having conversations with some in the business community about the challenges of Arizona not changing time zones.
I have received many responses to the proposed bill, and while some have favored it, the majority of the feedback has been against the idea for various reasons.
As an elected official I always listen to the voters. Therefore, I have decided not to move the bill any further and asked the Speaker to hold the bill indefinitely, essentially killing it, so we can focus instead on the budget, public education, public safety and the many other serious issues currently facing our state.”
